you came hurtling towards me at the speed of sound,
   i heard you coming.
   i saw you coming - and, in that difference between the the deafening boom and the blink of light...
   in that difference /distance - darkness.
i could not stop the collision and the explosion and the shattering...

   but, you are not the first disaster.

floods, eruption, chaos...  stillness, peace, then hope.

   the time between us counts in no way, so much so it counts in every way.  it was nothing.  and, everything.  

you were a meteor.  i was in your way.  was i in your way?
   the natural consequence:  my destruction.

next time: i will remind myself that i am not a planet, but a heart.
   i can move.
   i can save myself.
   i can hear the oceans shift and see the sun's rays and feel the changing of the winds...

you came and left and i have no idea what to do with this....
   thank you / i'm sorry...  (i wish we never met)

making new friends terrifies me.  it's an onslaught of revealing and vulnerability and...  it's exhausting.  and, i love it.  it surprises me every time - it shouldn't, but it does.  what it doesn't do - however - is replace those who are (i can't think of a better word right now) safeguards, who are heroes, who are lights and loves of my soul.

i guess - today - i am hyper aware of the gratitude i feel for these external forces.  today - i am hyper aware of the powerful changes i have applied to my own internal forces....

may we all get goosebumps around those we love - however we love them.

it's been a while.

things have been rushed.  slow.  painfully intangible.  sometimes, all too real.  wonderful.

happy?  sure, why not.
    most of the time.

it's an effort though, no?  most of the time, yes.
   it's a decision.  i chose, yes "i am happy" - because i know the alternative and that is boring, and predictable.
